In 1971, Gurrola asked Gelsen Gas to photograph the monoblock. Gas captured the essence of the found object and produced a series of 12 photographs of the monoblock. During November 29, 1971, in the Manuel M. Ponce Hall at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Gurrola presented Poemas y textos sin elocuencia: Monoblock (Poems and Writings without arguments: Monoblock). The venue was entirely booked and an industrial refrigerator was placed on stage containing the monoblock. During the event, behind a stand, Tina French and Juan José Gurrola read the poems written by him. Jan Kessler complemented the soundtrack with pantomime. The setting was done by Barbara Wasserman.

Photographs during the staging in Bellas Artes, poems from the Gurrola Foundation and testimonies from Tina French where used to present the oeuvre in 2013, during the Bienal do Mercosul in Porto Alegre, Brazil. In this occasion, the readers were Tina French, Edwarda Gurrola, Mauricio Marcín was the mime and Ruby Tagle as a scene coordinator.

Today, 46 years after the first performance, a new presentation will be held based on the documents and testimonies, collected over the last years. It tries to stay true to the first representation in Mexico. This time, Gurrola is summoned through the sound archives from the Gurrola Foundation. These, in turn, work with the writings, Monoblock and Casa Barragán to create a new and unique dialogue performed in by Tina French, Nora Manneck and Ariane Pellicer.
